The Magic Lamp Inn

Roadside Americana

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 44mm ISO 200 1/20 f/14 Lr4, TpzSim; PsCS6

A fixture on Foothill Boulevard (Route 66) in Rancho Cucamonga since 1955, with live music in the lounge four nights a week, and menu items like jumbo crab cocktail, Caesar salad tossed table side and Chateaubriand for two carved table side with both Bordelaise and Bernaise sauce, the Magic Lamp Inn is a throwback to an earlier time.

Roofline With Bird

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 135mm ISO 1250 1/2500 f/16 Lr4

One of the photographic exercises I task myself with from time to time is to find objects in my own backyard to make images from.  This is the roofline of my next door neighbor’s house, as seen from my backyard.  I like the diagonal lines created by the vents, the wood trim and the roof tiles, as well as the recurring pattern of the tiles, and how it all plays against the deep, blue sky.
